'Nike phenomenon' resurfaces in B.C. with discovery of foot in shoe

By JAKE ELLISON
February 10, 2016

If you die in coastal waters and are not discovered and you are wearing a running shoe — especially one with with gas injected into the shoe soles — then one or both of your feet could end up as the newest case of the "Nike Phenomenon."

That's what happened to someone's foot Sunday on a Vancouver Island shoreline. The Canadian Press reported that a hiker exploring Botanical Beach near Port Renfrew "came across a running shoe containing a human foot in a sock." The B.C. Coroners Service is investigating but so far foul play is not suspected.

So far, since 2007, 13 feet have washed ashore in British Columbia. Others have washed ashore elsewhere in the Northwest and across the globe.

For instance, Canada.com reported in 2008 that a right foot in a sock was found in New Zealand, a right foot in a high-top runner in the Ottawa River in Ottawa, two feet on Chesil Beach in southern England, two in Spain, one in California and another in Merseyside in the U.K.

In a story I wrote about the phenomenon in 2011, Curtis Ebbesmeyer, world renown oceanographer and beachcomber extraordinaire, told me:

"I think you could probably trace it to the Nike phenomenon. Nike was the one that really brought in the air soles. Certainly in the '90s, Nike was a major producer of shoes with gas injected soles. Once you start doing that then you have at least part of the phenomenon."

Coroners have explained that hundreds of people are likely missing in coastal waters and over time their bodies will decompose and disarticulate and what will float will float. Of the more than a dozen feet found in shoes, non of them have been associated with murder and certainly not mechanical dismemberment.

Of the 12 previous incidents, coroners report that 10 feet have been identified as belonging to seven people.

The is the 13th foot is currently under investigation. Regional Coroner Matt Brown told CKNW radio that DNA tests will be used to try and identify who the foot belongs to.

"The shoe itself we believe was manufactured in late 2012 early 2013 so what we are looking for most likely is somebody who went missing between March of 2013 and December of 2015."

Mysterious Universe

Men in Black…Gloves

February 12, 2016

By Nick Redfern

In September of last year, I wrote an article here at Mysterious Universe titled “Men in Black…Cloaks.” It began as follows (QUOTE): “There’s no doubt in my mind that when it comes to the matter of the Men in Black, there is a direct connection between these menacing characters and a wealth of other supernatural phenomena. That includes the Hat-Man, the Shadow People, the Black-Eyed Children, and the Women in Black. All of these entities are definitively sinister in nature and should be avoided at all costs. And, to a degree, they even mirror each other.

“The Black-Eyed Children, for example, parallel the MIB when it comes to trying to find their way into homes, usually late at night. The MIB and the Hat-Man are both known for their old-style fedoras. The Women in Black are the absolute female counterparts of the MIB, even down to the pale, overly-smooth skin. And there are more than a few reports on record of Shadow People wearing fedoras. This leads me to believe all of these ‘things’ are manifestations of one phenomenon, albeit in different (but not too different) guises. There is, however, yet another entity that falls into this particular category. It’s one that I have a few reports on, but which often gets overlooked when it comes to the MIB connection. We’re talking about ‘Men in Black Cloaks.'” (END OF QUOTE)

Well, now there’s yet another sub-category to add to all of the creepy characters described above: “Men in Black Gloves.” Over the years, a few reports have surfaced of the menacing Men in Black wearing black gloves, but certainly nowhere near the extent to which they are associated with black fedoras and old, 1950s-era black cars. However, between October of last year and late January of this year, I have received what I can only describe as a “cluster” of reports of the MIB wearing black gloves.

Now, if I got – hypothetically – a report or two every couple of years of gloved MIB, I probably wouldn’t have given the matter much thought. But, in the five months that have roughly passed since I got the first report, I have now received eight such accounts. And, from varying parts of the United States. Admittedly, at first, I thought this might be some curious kind of MIB “spam.” Namely, a group of people deciding to get together and waste my time with a bunch of bogus, concocted tales. But, having spoken on the phone with six of them, and having had extensive email exchanges with the remaining two, I’m 100 percent sure that’s not the case.

Government Says It Has Lost More UFO X-Files

02/15/2016 12:02 pm ET

by Alejandro Rojas

Government UFO-related documents seem to have a habit of disappearing. This time the files belonged to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

John Greenewald has been using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to get formerly classified documents from the government, and to post them online for decades. He began his efforts while in high school in the 1990s and continues his efforts to this day.

Greenewald was inspired to seek out these documents when he heard of UFO files that showed the U.S. government's interest in a UFO incident in Iran that took place in 1976. The government claims it no longer had any interest in UFOs since the official closing of its official UFO investigation, Project Blue Book, in 1969. He requested the document through a FOIA request and, to his surprise and delight, received it.

The file -- and the process of retrieving it -- fascinated Greenewald to the point where it spawned what has become a lifelong effort to retrieve formerly classified files and post them on the Internet. Greenewald's website, TheBlackVault.com, now has over 1.3 million formerly classified pages of documents.

In 1996, in response to a FOIA request, Greenewald received nearly 250 files from the DIA regarding UFOs. Supposedly, everything they had on the topic. However, several of the files were heavily redacted, meaning that there were blacked out sections, presumably, because those portions contained information that is still considered classified.

Occasionally, Greenewald requests that these files undergo a Mandatory Declassification Review (MDR). The government is then supposed to review the previously declassified document to determine if redacted material can be unredacted, due to the information that had previously been blacked out having since been declassified.

It was an MDR of a classified document about spy planes that allowed the term Area 51 to be unredacted, thus making the existence of the super secret Area 51 military base official. Of course, that location had already been famous in UFO circles and popculture.

In 2014, Greenewald requested an MDR for the DIA documents he had obtained in 1996. In his inquiry, Greenewald included links to download the files he had received from the DIA which he now wanted reviewed.

Months later, in mid-2015, Greenewald received a reply that the links he had provided did not work, so the case would be suspended. The responses by the DIA are actually a bit confusing, but it appears once Greenewald's links could be accessed, the files he requested were not found.

The DIA wrote, "It appears the FOIA case files have been purged from the FOIA database."

The DIA asked Greenewald to provide the specific names of the files for them to "move forward in conducting a review."

Confused by the request, given that the file names are on the files themselves, Greenewald asked for clarification.

He was told, "The related FOIA case has been purged, the documents could not be identified and/or located."

The DIA officer reiterated, "We would need the titles in order to conduct a good faith effort for our search."

Frustrated, via social media, Greenewald wrote me, "The letter states that, despite me GIVING them the documents, they can't find them, and want exact titles."

He interprets the phrase "good faith effort" to mean they will make another effort, but they already had that information and could not find the documents, so the search is useless. Without the original non-redacted files, the DIA will not be able to conduct an MDR, and whatever information that was in those files that was blacked out is -- officially -- lost forever.

This isn't the first time this has happened to Greenewald. In 2014, he requested an MDR for the National Security Agency's (NSA) UFO files, which were part of a high profile court case.

In the late 70s, the Citizens Against UFO Secrecy (CAUS), headed by lawyer Peter Gersten, sought UFO files from several government agencies via a FOIA request. The NSA refused to release their files, so CAUS sued.

The NSA had a large amount of UFO information, not necessarily because it was investigating UFOs, but because it monitors communications worldwide as part of its regular duties. These files are called communications intelligence (COMINT). Among this large amount of data, there were hundreds of files referring to UFOs. However, the NSA felt they should remain classified.

In 1980, Eugene F. Yeates, chief of the Office of Policy for the NSA, submitted a 21-page document to the judge overseeing the case, Federal Judge Gerhart A. Gesell, as to why these files should remain classified. This document is often referred to as the "Yeates affidavit." It, too, was classified.

Although Gesell did not have the clearance to read the documents in question, the Yeates affidavit convinced him that the NSA files should stay classified. He wrote, "The public interest in disclosure is far outweighed by the sensitive nature of the materials and the obvious effect on national security their release may well entail."

When the Yeates affidavit was released, it was heavily redacted. UFO researcher Stanton Friedman shows a page from the document to demonstrate government UFO secrecy, and as he says, this goes over well on television where a simple image can be very effective when making a point.

THOUGHT I’D LET YOU KNOW ABOUT MY SURPRISE WINDFALL:

I won a Nigerian lottery according to an email I received from a Nigerian prince named Tyrone the Second.

User Image

He holds the sum of ONE MILLION DOLLARS in my name and he wants to send it to me FREE! All I have to do is give him my bank account numbers and send him $500.00 US dollars cash, to show my good faith so he can transfer the money!

And then I got ANOTHER email:

It's from a KENYAN who wants to give me FREE healthcare for life!

User Image


All I have to do is give him: MY BANK ACCOUNT NUMBERS, MY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, MY CONFIDENTIAL HEALTH INFORMATION and pay $900 per month for a policy with only a $10,000 deductible. Then he can make it happen!

Am I on a roll or what!

Wu, it's time you stood up. Call up Friedman, Pope, and BJ and get each one to kick in a million for starting off your campaign.

With your personality and beliefs, you'd be a shoo-in!

Fox News Latino

Green aliens descend on Argentina town that's become hotspot for UFO sightings

Published February 16, 2016

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a UFO!

At least that’s what thousands were hoping to see.

Thousands of aliens, the green, bulgy-eyed kind, gathered in a small town in Argentina that has become a hotspot for extra-terrestrial sightings. The earthlings descended on Capilla del Monte for the annual international alien festival.

The weekend festival in Cordoba province included a parade of neon lights with Star Wars characters, an alien costume contest and shops selling green stuffed aliens with bulging eyes next to hooded ETs from the 1982 film.

Some also attended workshops on everything extraterrestrial held near a local hill that is the site of a purported UFO sighting 30 years ago. The incident reputedly left a large burning mark on the hill's grass.

The sighting also left a mark in the economy of the town, which has flourished with its alien tourism.

"People come here for the energy, for the UFO sightings," said Leonardo Fuentes, a visitor from Chile. "So it's not just tourism but more about all that you can see."

The festival, now in its fourth year, has become popular among alien enthusiasts worldwide, but some locals are concerned about its fast growth.

"The festival is fun, but it can also generate a lack of seriousness toward the issue," said Luz Mary Lopez, who heads the UFO Investigation Center in Capilla del Monte.

Her late husband made the investigation of the town's UFO sightings his life's work. Lopez has continued this by offering talks on the events of Jan. 9, 1986, when a local boy saw what many believe to be an alien spaceship. She also has been asking authorities to go beyond tourism to develop the town as a scientific and spiritual hub.

One of the most visited sites during the weekend festival was the nearby Uritorco hill. Known as Argentina's "magic mountain," it is sought after by star-gazers, seekers of its "special source of energy" credited for the UFO sightings, and even those who believe it is a door to other dimensions.

Based on reporting by The Associated Press.
